Terrell Young Struggles to make Resurgence


Img_6418_medium


Twenty-four year old RHP Terrell Young was relinquiched into the Red's organization once more on October 27th, 2009 from the Washington Nationals. The initial transaction occurred when the Reds left him unprotected to a Rule 5 Draft in 2008, at which time Washington promptly offered him a one year contract. The likely cause for the Nationals change of heart is centered around shoulder inflammation issues from the 09 pre-season. In fact from my search, it seems he played a few innings of exhibition baseball for the Nats before being injured.

This is a move that was previously denied on May 13, 2009. After much debacle, it seems as if Cincinnati has accepted him back into the organization. It appears that the higher ups believe that  full recovery might be in the workings for Terrell. Recently, they have even extended an invitation to spring training. Bear in mind that nothing is ever proof positive in baseball, But it would be excellent if he at the very least picked up where he left off with us, making solid strides toward bullpen support.

 

After some tutoring from Tom Browning and Mario Soto on fastball location and a change-up respectively, Terrell was excelling quite rapidly before his departure from Sarasota. In 2008 he posted career high numbers in middle relief for Dayton and Sarasota, which combined look like (2-5 2.88) over 59.1 innings. He had serious consideration to pad out the National's bullpen, and now he has serious consideration for a spot in ours. Perhaps he could fill a void left by Coco Departing?
